About Erin

Hello! My name is Erin C. I live in Versailles, Kentucky. I tutor a variety of subjects from English Literature to public speaking. I can help with any English assignment from the elementary level up to Graduate School at the University Level. I have a Masters Degree with a focus on Playwrighting and am currently in middle of attaining my MFA in Creative Non-Fiction. My work has been published in Public Republic Magazine, and most recently in the 2014 Lexington Poetry Anthology. I have had original plays produced in Los Angeles and produced film and theatre myself during my 20 years in the theatre and film industry in Hollywood. My book, "June Bug Versus Hurricane," is currently out to publishers, and I look forward to it's publication. The screenplay based on my book was written by Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook) and a film is in development. There is nothing I love more than education. My passion for literature, poetry, plays and history knows no bounds. I have also worked as a ghost writer for screenplays and memoir, with much success in the editing process of those genres. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing how I can help you improve your writing skills or pass that class! Hello! My name is Erin C. I live in Versailles, Kentucky.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I am a writer and have had short stories and poetry published in journals and magazines in Kentucky and Los Angeles. My original play was produced to critical acclaim and rave reviews when it was staged at the Lost Studio in Hollywood. My first novel June Bug Versus Hurricane will be submitted to publishers by my agent this fall. I have been an avid reader ever since I was a child and love literature more than I can describe! I would love the opportunity to share my love of the English language with others.

Film

I have twenty years experience as an actress and producer. I was based in Los Angeles for the past two decades and did films such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas with Johhnny Depp, Terry Gilliam director, Dead Husbands filmed in Toronto with John Ritter. I produced award winning Independent Film Lost in the Pershing Point Hotel, winner of best script Los Angeles Independent Film Festival and Best Indy Film New York Independent Film Festival. I have written a screenplay with Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook, Alpha Dog) that is based on my book. The film is in development to be shot on location in Las Vegas and Kentucky.

Public Speaking

I have a B.A. in Theatre as well as a Masters in Theatre from the University of Kentucky. With these years of training the stage has become a second home. I have held many seminars on playwriting and spoken to large audiences about the craft of acting. As a producer of Independent Film in Hollywood, I have traveled to Film Festivals around the country and spoke on panels discussing film. I am confident with my background that I can tutor on public speaking, vocal techniques and holding an audience's attention by being both to the point and poignant, entertaining and knowledgeable in whatever subject you are speaking to the public about.

Theatre

I have worked in the Theatre for the last 25 years. I received a BA in theatre from the University of Kentucky and just returned to graduate school and received a Masters in Theatre from the University of Kentucky in 2012. I studied theatre at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California as well as Kings College in London. I have acted in countless plays and received a Best Actress Dramalogue Award for playing Chrissie in David Rabe's In the Boom Boom Room in Los Angeles. I also have produced many critically acclaimed and award winning plays and a very successful rock opera. I wrote and produced my own play and it had a wonderful run at the Lost Studio on La Brea, Hollywood, CA. I am currently writing a new play and plan on staging it soon.

Brainpower for English Literature

Erin is very knowledgeable and clever when it comes to English Literature. She helped me grasp literature with her appreciation for poetry by researching about the author’s background and not just the poem itself. I look forward to working with her in the near future. I HIGHLY recommend her on any English subject.
